TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Stonestreet Alexander Mountain Estate Monument Ridge 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Alexander Valley.  "A lovely Cabernet, ripe and delicious, yet complex enough to hold your interest. It's just beginning its journey in the bottle. Very dark in color, with hard tannins, it has an immense core of blackberries and cherries. Give it at least 6–8 years, but it could still be rocking in 2022." 93 points, Wine Enthusiast.

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Cline 2013 Viognier  - Sonoma. Cline’s Viognier offers distinctive aromas of pears, apricots, orange blossoms and honeysuckle. Its bright flavors and full-body mouth-feel, crisp finish and bright acidity make this wine a charmer.

Mud House 2012 Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand.  "This wine delivers jus about everything you'd possibly expect from the variety and the region-grassy aromas, a bountiful mix of herb and tropical fruit flavors, ample weight and texture, and a long finish built around a solid core of grapefruit." 90 pts., Wine Enthusiast

Belle Ambiance 2012 Chardonnay - Manteca, CA.  Aromas of lemon zest, honeysuckle and hints of toasty oak that are beautifully set off by flavors of citrus, orchard fresh green apples, pears and creamy marshmallows. This medium bodied wine delights with light tannins balanced by good acidity. Enjoy its rich, juicy finish.

RED WINE SELECTION:

Tormaresca 2012 Primitivo - Italy.  Rich black cherry and blueberry with a hint of licorice.  Well-structured with soft tannins on the long, lingering finish. Smooth and delicious.

Battle Axe 2012 Malbec - Argentina.  A complex nose of wild berries with subtle spice notes. Its superb fruit flavors combine perfectly with toasty hues providing great structure, character and a long finish.

Roots Run Deep Educated Guess 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - Napa Valley.  Rich, ripe, and focused with juicy blackberry and cherry fruit, milk chocolate, and dusty notes all tied together with a creamy french vanilla middle and a finish that in a word is ... lingering.

We stock 80 craft beers and our beer list is changes every week.

With over 150 unique Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys (and a few Scotches!) You won't find a better selection of brown than at Market Alley Wines! And you just never know when some rare Bourbons will show up. We seriously have the widest selection you will find!
